Fun & interesting idea, but I'm already taking a break because the stereotypes are blackening my eyes. I'm sure there is a good reason for this, that Bray is doing it to make a point, and in the end I'll be all, "This book is brilliant! Everyone must buy a copy now". But so far Beauty Queens sort of offensive in it's (purposeful...?) simplicity. *whispers* Tina Fey would have done it better.

I want to douse this book in gasoline and set it alight. I think my feelings are intensified by how much I know this retarded piece of dog crap is going to be praised all over the internets b/c it's "feminist 'n' stuff". Last I checked Feminism wasn't about proving women were BETTER then men. I feel like Bray is trying to brainwash me here. Plus, the footnotes and commercial breaks make me wanna punch a baby.

I said it once and I'll say it again: Tina Fey would have done this better. Infinitely better. Look, I know I'm not done with this book. But I can tell you now, unless this book stops being so preachy, or actually forces me to think at some point, it's only getting 3 stars. Tops.

Penny Also, I completely get that it's satire. But, WOW, is it ham-fisted and therefore really irritating at times.
